Reasons for Exemption
Geotechnical borings will occur in an existing dirt pullout within the highway facility. The 4" bore holes constitute a minor alteration to the existing facility, with no expansion profits existing use. The shoulder widening project itself was approved in August 2018 with an MND/FONSI (SCH# 2018032066). Environmental resources were evaluated at the bore locations and no potentially-significant impacts are anticipated.
